Wildcats go down to Buffs by 1
Siiiiiiiiiigggh. The UNH wildcats fell to the University of Colorado Buffalos last night 9-8 to lose their fourth game of the year by 1. We came out of the gates flying and enjoyed an early 2-0 lead. The Buffs then played like a top 10 team in the country and scored 6 un-answered goals. We then had a little rally of ourselves to make the game 6-5 at half time. An even second half led to a see-saw game with back and forth goals. Once again we had one last chance to win it but the clock struck midnight with the final score Colorado 9 UNH 8.
Goal Scorers: Joe Gardiner 3 Mark Cochrane 2 Evan Flower 1 Dan Milano 1 and Connor Murphy 1
Zach Goodwin went 10 for 16 on faceoffs which is a good sign for things to come.
We have our last regular season game this Friday against Northeastern. This is essentially the first playoff game for us because if we win we sneak in as the 6th seed in the conference playoffs and have the distinction of being the one team that no one wants to play. We have lost 5 conference games by a combined 7 goals. Yes Johnny Mcenroe ...we are serious.
